Finally, I examined plant PIMT activity in plants native to different environments. I found that tropical plant tissues have significantly higher levels of PIMT activity than temperate plant tissues. Furthermore, PIMT activity increased with age in Musae sp. (banana) fruit. These findings will help us understand the purpose of plant PIMT, which may help us better understand its role in other organisms such as humans.Nucleic Acids Res 27: 297-300 Himmelbach A, Yang Y, Grill E (2003) Relay and control of abscisic acid signaling. ...
